The moment the people stop to con aider the real oonsequences to themselves, and the future of this parish, they will then co-operate toward the retention for our par. ish of a large timber assessment, so that our bonds may be easily paid. You note the increase in taxes this yeart What will happen in ten years hence, when the action of a few of our citizens has forced a hasty out of the timber and con sequent out in the assessment, when our bonds still have to be paid, and our parish still desires to progress, and the FARMER and small fellow has to PAY THE TAXES?

Forl, President of the Ford Motor Company, gives tld the fo!lo h ii;ng statem ent: " Ihe price of the FORDSON Tractor has been reduced from $790.00 to 625.00, effllective immediately. 'This price change has been made possible through lower costs of materials aiind the tact that we are now located in our new Tractor Pi.int with greatly iicreased economic nianufacturiiig facilities in immiediate couiection with our foundry and niachine shops and large blast furnaces wh'+e iron i, ý ured directly troiii the cre, giving us maxinunmi edliciencv with the( power to reduce cost ot production, atna down cuoucm titt price in hle with cur pohcy to nmarket our products at tic ltoWst poutloi nguire withuit in ainy way allecting ouri high staaiiard a qualnity. "We are particularly pleased inll being unle to bring anout this big re uctionti in price at tiln tune because the tarmner nteeds all the help \t can give huniii and this big cut in price will be the means of placing a val uable power unit witnin the reach of practically every one of them, not to mnt ittun industrial and conimercial concerns which likewise have ben etitteu through its use and are already realizing, to a much greater ex teut, its vague as a power anid hauling unit. But particularly has theo FUORDON Tractor proved a most valuable tactor in the saving ot farm labor, at the same tiune ilcreasing the per acre crop yield as well ab mak ing possible a utilization of previously uncultivated land, to say nothing of removing no end of drudgery. "There is no question that the use of machine power on the farm is the greatest advancement made in the development of agriculture, not only in money saving and money making results, as well as raising the standards of living ~n the farm to a much higher level, but because of its provedl value in making every type of land more productive, and conse quently our desire to place the FURDSON within the reach of all. "IHEiE 18 NU CHANGE IN THE PRESENT FORl) CAR AND TRUCK PRICES, which are already at the lowest possible figure and now with rock bottom reached on the tractor price a further reduction in price of either the Car, Truck or Tractor is out of the question; in fact, the big price cute have been made in anticipation of continuous maxi mum production and increases may be necessary before long if a large volume of iinew business is not obtained. Therelutore, present prices of Ford products cannot be guaranteed against possible increases." Ask for the book "The Fordson at work," which will be supplied free of cost.
